I've imagined I had a mouse as a pet. Those are intellegent creatures. Fancy mice are the known kind of mice as pets.

We've had hamsters and gerbils for awhile, but we had one cat who could get the lid off the aquarium and would fish the little critters out and turn them loose in the house. Then we'd come home from work and see that all the little gerbils were out of the aquarium and spend hours looking. So we got an actual cage, and he got that open too. He never ate any or even hurt them, including some very small babies at times. He seems to just want to watch them run around the house. (Free, free, set them free)!

I don't think they would be happy as a pet unless they are rescued and cannot be returned to their natural habitat.
